Happy New Year

Happy New Year

“The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold, wet day.”
~The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss

We love Dr. Seuss books. Our wintry weather this morning reminded me of the opening lines of Theodore Geisel’s most famous children’s book, so I read it to the twins. They sat in my lap for about three-fourths of the book and then listened to the rest while playing.

They have developed quite a love for reading in the last week or so, bringing us armfuls of books at a time to read to them. I read at least half of this stack of books to them yesterday afternoon, and now we are reading them again.

We also love books by Eric Carle and Sandra Boynton as you can see. Most of our Dr. Seuss books are not board books, so they are not on the shelves for the little ones. We are still working on turning paper pages without tearing them. I’m just glad they enjoy reading and listening to books as much as their mama and big brother. I hope they always maintain their love of reading.

This is a perfect way to spend a cold, wet holiday–reading a good book next to a warm fire. I hope your New Year is starting off as wonderful.


About Leslie

I am a mother of four, who loves organization but is dealt a new hand of chaos each day. I love Jesus and each of my unique children. I strive to foster these relationships and bring a little organization to our chaotic home. I want to be a better blogger, but, truthfully, this is just not as high on my priority list as the aforementioned relationships or the state of our home.
